Engagement with UN Global Compact, 2 December 2017

On December 2nd 2017, KITA Principal Fellow Datuk Dr. Denison Jayasooria and member of the Malaysian CSO-SDG alliance met with Mr. Puvan Selvanathan, President of the UN Global Compact at their office.

The UN Global Compact promotes partnership among stakeholders for the implementation of SDGs especially enlisting business sector to finance SDG ground level projects with CSOs. The Malaysian chapter of the UN Compact will be launching a SDG portal in January 2018 and the Alliance has agreed to be a partner. One key task is securing case studies of current SDG projects undertaken by the CSOs so as to ensure that no one is left behind.
